LOCAL BUSINESS AWARDS LAUNCHED

Buzz hits Hills and Blacktown

THE annual local Business Awards are underway in the Hills and Blacktown

Winning a trophy at the Local Business Awards is a thrill, but every entrant receives an even greater prize – learning what their business is doing right, and how they can improve on it.

That’s the take home message from Business Awards founder, Steve Loe and after more than three decades he should know.

The Precedent Production managing director founded the awards more than 30 years ago as an opportunity for members of the community to recognise businesses that provide outstanding goods and services.

“Year after year, the stand-out message from our nominees has been that the awards judging process gives them a framework in which they can reflect on every aspect of their business – from customer service to presentation,” Mr Loe said.

“Business people can often become so immersed in the day-to-day running of their operation, that it’s hard to take time to step back and evaluate what they’re doing from a customer’s point of view.

“The Local Business Awards provides an opportunity and framework for business owners and managers to take an impartial look at what they and their teams are doing, then adjust suit.”

This month there’s a buzz among businesses in the Hills and Blacktown as the awards get underway in those areas, Mr Loe said.

In the Hills, nominations have closed and judging is underway, while nominations have just opened for the Blacktown Local Business Awards.

Mr Loe said Sydney Hills residents had taken advantage of the opportunity to lodge nominations via the Awards’ website.

“We launched the online nominations option last year and it was a huge success,” he said. “This year, more people than ever took the opportunity to nominate their favourite businesses online.

“Coupled with the printed coupons, we were inundated with thousands of nominations.”

Precedent Productions staff have already started to review the nominations, find the most popular nominees in each business category and notify those who are chosen as finalists.

The awards’ anonymous judges will then visit each finalist to assess their services from a customer’s point of view.

Mr Loe encouraged members of the community to nominate and vote for their favourite local businesses by visiting the Awards’ website www.thebusinessawards.com.

Nominations for the Blacktown 2018 Local Business Awards close on April 10.

Western Sydney Business Access will provide regular updates on the progress of the awards program and will also run a special Finalists Feature.
